Could you please send me all information you have on Alcatrez. I am doing a report on it and I need all the information I can get.

thank you

That's a big order! You'd be amazed how much information exists about Alcatraz; there are literally dozens of books in print, and my park's archive contains thousands of photographs, plans, rosters, and other documents about the prison. It would take days just to list all the stuff let alone sent it to you!

If you have Web access, try using the following two sites. They contain a wealth of information that you can use in your report. This is the official National Park Service home page and makes a great starting point. This is a private home page but contains much more information, including photographs, prisoner information, "Frequently Asked Questions" section, and more. This is the site for my book "Fortress Alcatraz." The book gives extensive information about the island before the penitentiary when it was an army fort and an army prison.

Hope this is useful.
